Reports from Junior Committee Members
“ What a fantastic night was had by all at the Under  11 /13 disco and Awards night on Friday! The highlight of the evening was the prize-giving which was made even more special by a visit from one of Scotland’s most amazing distance runners, none other than Callum Hawkins himself. Kids and adults alike were in awe to have such a charming superstar in our midst. The queue for autographs and photos seemed endless! Lots  of fun party games, fabulous dancers, delicious pizza and some very acrobatic limbo stars rounded off the night and lots of exhausted but happy kids were packed off home. Job done! “
Ali Watson, Junior Committee
”There was a great buzz about GHA on Friday night as over 50 U11/13  athletes descended on the club for their annual prize giving and disco. There was lots of dancing, party games and even a limbo competition which the kids loved!!! A fantastic time was had by all and the highlight of the night was a visit from Callum Hawkins who kindly gave out all the medals and certificates, signed autographs and posed for photos. The children (and parents) were delighted that he could come and he was such an inspiration to all.
After pizza, juice and sweets were consumed and more dancing it was time to go home, the night was summed up by one of the children who said “ that was awesome”. Delighted to hear that everyone had fun and look forward to next year”
